'96 Classic Rear Bedroom Cabinet Separation

We have a 1996 Classic Excella 1000. We appear to be experiencing some separation of the rear bedroom cabinetry from the street side wall. It is unclear to me whether or not the upper wall brackets were ever fastened to the wall (no screws or rivets now) and there is a 1/2 inch gap between the lower wall fasteners (screws) and the wall. Is flexing of the wall the problem and should these fastenings be connected and if so what method is best?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Boy, Gary, Pictures might help, but I got a feeling if there is really a lot of flexing going on back there, we wouldn't be able to tell without a thorough look over, under, inside and out. Any other signs of things moving about?

If I understand you correctly, and there is no hanger or mount on which the upper side of the cabinets are attached to, then the only thing holding the cabinets to the wall would be the lower wall hanger or screws, is that right? If so, then the weight of the cabinets themselves would cause the movement that you described (even without the weight of whatever was inside the cabinets). I can't be sure that this is what's happening but it sounds like this is part of your problem.
